Honda HR-V: Electronic Throttle Control System Description

Overview

The electronic throttle control system (ETCS) opens and closes the throttle valve by electronic control. This system consists of a throttle actuator built into the throttle body, throttle valve and throttle position (TP) sensor A/B, accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor A/B, ETCS driver built into the powertrain control module (PCM) and ETCS control relay (in the under-hood fuse/relay box) that supplies power to the ETCS driver.

Engine Control System & Engine Mechanical - Testing & Troubleshooting

ETCS is a system that opens and closes the throttle valve electronically, it has various functions such as:

  • Idle Control Function
    Where the throttle position is controlled to optimize idle speed depending on the engine loads when idling.
  • Accelerator Control Function
    Where the target throttle position is calculated by the throttle position sensor signals to control the throttle valve when the accelerator pedal is pressed.
  • VTEC Control Function
    Where the throttle valve is controlled in coordination with the VTEC ON/OFF to switch smoothly.
  • Transmission Control Function (CVT)
    Where the throttle valve is controlled in coordination with the transmission to reduce shift time.
  • VSA Control Function (with VSA)
    Where the throttle position is controlled based on a signal from the VSA modulator-control unit.
  • Fail-Safe Function
    Where the throttle valve is controlled to avoid danger even in the event of a malfunction.

Control

When the accelerator pedal is operated, accelerator pedal position (APP) sensors are driven and the accelerator pedal position is detected. The accelerator pedal position is delivered to the powertrain control module (PCM), and the PCM drives the throttle actuator in the throttle body based on the delivered throttle pedal position to open or close the throttle valve.Throttle position is detected by the throttle position (TP) sensors in the throttle body and delivered to the PCM.The PCM drives the throttle actuator to control the throttle position, during idling, when the VTEC system switches, when transmission shifting, during VSA control, and when necessary, as well as based on the signals from the APP sensors.

INTAKE AIR SYSTEM DESCRIPTION - INTAKE MANIFOLD TUNING (IMT) VALVE SYSTEM

Engine power is adjusted by opening and closing the intake manifold tuning (IMT) actuator. When the valve is closed, there is high torque at low engine speed. When the valve is open, there is high torque at high engine speed. The intake manifold tuning (IMT) valve actuator contains a sensor that detects the IMT valve position and sends it to the PCM.

PCV SYSTEM DESCRIPTION - OVERVIEW

Some of the unburned gases in the combustion chamber will leak past the gap between the pistons and cylinders into the crankcase. The blow-by gases that include the unburned gases are returned through the positive crankcase ventilation or PCV valve and are burned. This prevents the blow-by gases from flowing into the atmosphere. In addition, the breather chamber of the cylinder block separates oil from blow-by gas, which prevents the oil from entering the combustion chamber.
